Fr. Nev Homily- March 28-29
5th Sunday of Lent
Archdiocese of Brisbane
AMID the bustle of an uncertain world around us, Brisbane Catholics are being invited to visit and experience a unique overseas mission.
The Missionaries of the Poor are calling for volunteers to visit and serve in their mission house in Labuan Bajo on the Indonesian island of Flores, and to assist in the daily care of disabled residents.
It might sound like a daunting task, however, in 2017 Fr Nev Yun, administrator at the Holy Family Catholic parish at Indooroopilly, led a small group on a nine-night visit to the MOP mission, and described the richness of the experience in terms of simplicity, gentleness and serving.

FINANCE COMMITTEE REPORT
For the Financial year ending 31/12/19,the parish enjoyed a modest financial surplus of $103721. However the Parish would have operated at a loss if it were not for rental income received from organizations such as Centacare, which provides outside School Hours Care.
Canonical approval was given for 2 major Capital works. The refurbishment of the Retaining wall and associated civil works will cost $140,000 and the sealing of the church drains an additional $76000. The funds for these projects will be provided from Holy Family reserves. Parishioners will appreciate that this has placed considerable strain on the parish to meet future planned and unplanned Capital Expenditure and maintenance projects. The continuing support from Parishioners is appreciated, and any increase would be gratefully received.
